We are deeply grateful to those who have been called from among our community to serve in positions of leadership in our parish. Whether in spiritual matters for the good of the faithful or in matters related to responsible stewardship of the gifts God has given our parish, it is vital to hear feedback from the parish and have representatives advise the pastoral team. Please pray for all of our parish leaders that they may guide us with the wisdom and courage that come through the Holy Spirit!
“There can be no community among us unless our common life and mission are governed by deliberations and decisions that draw us all towards a unity of thought, sentiment, and action. To those deliberations and decisions we are all obligated as men pledged to obedience both to contribute and to respond.” —Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross (7.80)
